who'd you take a new mortgage out with. In sure you did of you have greens on the radar.

Metro bagel, is at machne Yehuda shul train stop

Greens was great. It's on Keren Kayemet near Diskin. Not so expensive. Unless you mean a different place.

But you're right. It's gotta be difficult for those living there to go out even once in a while.

I haven't touched lots of these places since the era in which I was in yeshiva and living off the parent's dole.
I tend to stick to Groupon's and falafel nowadays.

Madanei Geulah on Straus (right near Kikar Shabbos), Hadar Geulah in Tel Arza, Toameh at the beginning of Meah Shearim, Kretchme on bottom of Yechezkel, Heimish Essen on Ramban in Rechavia.

Don't forget about Ma'adanei Zahav on Malachi. My friend's father-in-law owns it. Tiny place, but super clean, and the food is absolutely amazing. :)
